This paper describes a computerized environment for teaching the conceptual patterns of critical literacy. While the full implementation of the software covers both reading and writing, this paper discusses only the writing aspect of R-WISE Reading and Writing in a Supportive Environment. The project is part of a seven year Air Force Effort--Fundamental Skills Training or FST--to transition advanced computer-aided instruction to the public school sector. This paper gives an overview of the approach the tutor uses, its underpinnings in cognitive and textual theories, and the results of a pilot study 1992-1993.
